University Logo/ Coat of Arms
there's been a bit of disagreement over the university logo in the info box, with somebody putting in a v. small version that includes the university's name in it, this is obviously wrong, it has to fill the box and not have the name, the issue of the lions penis is up to someone else. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Xyphoid (talk • contribs)
There is nothing on this page about any of the university's museums or collections http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/museum/
This might be something useful to add.
I have rearranged the sections to make more sense and fit with the style of other high quality articles within wikiproject:unis
However the article still needs a lot of work, a lot of it is unreferenced, or goes into too much setail for a general encyclopedia, some bits could have thier own section like halls of residence and some bits could be removed or have articles created for them like traditions or the long paras on a few departments.
Over the next few weeks I will be working on a major rewrite of this page to adress issues w/r/t unencyclopeadic content, unverifiable content, missing content and structure
Erm, mostly done and uploaded, still needs to have some work done, would also appreciate any photos people had if they could be added. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Xyphoid (talk • contribs) 14:51, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
- Hi Xyphoid, I've just had a skim-look over the article. Its taking shape, i've only read the lead in detail so far. My main comments for that would be to reference some of the statements. eg. Who says its the third oldest english speaking university? I guess its clear later but its best to reference.
- Also, as a comment further up mentions, is there need for a section of the lead to be on the university rankings. I think one sentence would do. Looking over the general structure - it looks appropriate. I'd consider keeping the alumni to the separate list page. You could keep the images in a gallery format and right some prose, see Jesus College, Oxford for some inspiration on that section. Photos wise - have you checked commons?

Remove list of Alumni
From the peer review I suggest removing the list of Alumni as all of the information should be covered in the List of alumni of the University of St Andrews. Obviously the first thing is to do is check all of the Alumni on this article are already contained on the list. Jamesmcmahon0 (talk) 19:38, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
